's the politics, not the policy. when you're having the same conversation over and over again with john boehner and ted cruz, and the answer is no. there's only so much you can do. ironically, some of the ideas, investing in infrastructure used to be supported by republicans, but barack obama says it be with and we can't do that without an offset. part of the problem is, so much of this is about the politics of obstruction and the idea it would give obama a win. rather than just a pure messaging stand point, i don't understand why the republicans don't say let's all get credit. you can say we created jobs. >> what's frustrating, josh, is it does seem even an unemployment extension of three months becomes an exercise in futility. to the points, no one is tackling the longer term problem you have to get the economy to generate jobs. but at the same time, the economy is losing jobs, there are figures out showing that just one week of people losing these jobless benefits is going to cost $408 million, that's money they can't spend into the economy. ongoing damage is being done, and we're never gett
're not there. house speaker, john boehner, said he might bring it up for a vote. if the cuts are made elsewhere. >> when the white house finally called me last friday, about extending unemployment benefits, i said that we would clearly consider it. as long as it's paid for, and as long as there are other efforts that will help get our economy moving once again. >> tell me, mr. boehner, was the shutdown paid for? no. you're wiping your hands of that one, right? democrats are taking a huge leap of faith trusting john boehner to go along with the senate bill. you know, i want to play out a scenario, if i may, tonight on this program. i would like to present myself to you viewers tonight as a long-term unemployed american. i'm in my 50s. i'm trying to to get back into the marketplace. i'm trying to get back into the economy. i have applied for jobs every day. with you just nothing seems to be breaking, because the economy is just still very much in a rut. now i've been in the work force for 25 years. i've paid all my taxes, i've played by the rules. you know, but you know what? my job was outsource
not to work with their own leadership. is, do you think, ted crews prepared to work with speaker john boehner. maybe 2016 and a possible presidential bid. >> i think john boehner hit it on the head. he let the dogs out. there has been a lot of people waiting for someone to take the leadership, representing that tea party represented a small faction, when the tea party is behind candidates. john boehner needs to keep it up and show leadership on the compromised leadership. there's a lot who have fallen to the middle ground. they want to see both sides work together. he needs to be the leader, follow suit. the smaller factions, whether they are far left or right go away. >> crews was on this week, and defended the republican shutdown. there's a deal that's been reached that was a bipartisan deal. that came weeks after speaker john boehner lambasted the extreme party. can you close the rift within the republican party. let's tart with utah. ist you have to. the tea party right doesn't represent the nation as a whole. if we ran on a tea party right platform, they'd never win an election. they may

were called, if john boehner would actually call the bill, i think we might be able to extend those benefits. certainly in the senate we've got some bipartisan support, and i think in the house too. so really, if democracy were allowed to work and the majority were allowed to rule, i think we oh could actually do some good. but we've got john boehner seeming -- yet again to be in control of the tea party, and that faction. but, you know, we'll see. there's a hot of pressure being put on both houses now, to extend those benefits. >> well, you know, in john boehner's district, i was told by louise slaughter says there is a poll that says 63% of the people in boehner's district, they want to extend unemployment benefits to these americans who are now in a sense destitute and wondering what's going to happen to them. does the poll really matter? do the people matter here? i mean, the corporations have such a tremendous grab on the republican party. i mean, right now, from what i understand, from the democrats, is that you're hoping that public pressure back home on elected officials in

are a sharp decline from previous congresses. we went back today and looked at john boehner's freshman year. that congress passed a whopping 610 bills into law. but boehner did remind us all in july that that is no way to judge his congress now. >> we should not be judged on how many new laws we create. we ought to be judged on how many laws we repeal. >> okay, then, mr. speaker. let's do that for a minute. even on that measure, it turns out this congress is a failure. even on its supposedly core pieces of conservative agenda items, many never got a vote. look, for example, at an attempt to repeal fuel economy standards. a failure. 101 house members cosigned a bill that would effectively terminate a huge chunk of the tax code. that was a failure. so even by the speaker's metric, the first year this congress was a failure. we are going to find out soon, as soon as tuesday, whether that will all change. joining us now to unpack it is robert costa, a cnbc political analyst and back with us here at the table, steve kornacki. robert, we are hearing talk about boehner's interests in a small immig

want to start with you. >> yes. john boehner seems to be indicating he hired beck toe work for mccain on immigration stuff. is it possible, dare i say? >> it sounded the same note over these last months that he wants to see something done. he doesn't want a big bill. hiring rebecca talent and essentially telling the tea party to jump in a lake, that was also, i think, a good sign in terms of where he wants to be in 2014 in terms of immigration reform. >> bob costa on nia's point, the unbound john boehner at the end of last year, telling the tea party jump in a lake, paraphrasing, will that continue? >> i think john boehner wants to get something done on immigration. look for piecemeal bills and probably a republican version of the dream act. he doesn't have the politicala capital to pass more than that. >> john boehner, i know he's filed for reelection, but do you think he ultimately seeks reelection and does that impact how far he's willing to push among conservatives? >> i think he will seek reelection and until it's clear that he won't be speaker, he will run for the speakershi
, but you saw the numbers in john boehner's house, not a lot of bills get passed. record-breaking lows last year. what will happen? >> well, i think the real critical factor in the house, ari, is going to be whether or not we come up with a way to come up with that $6 billion. whether it's through eliminating tax loopholes or finding revenue somewhere else. i think if we're able to do that, we'll get plenty of republican votes for a bill. i don't think speaker boehner will have any problem bringing it to the floor. >> you're talking about offsets, something the republicans have gotten really good at getting everyone to constantly feel they need an offset for relatively small numbers. what about going after carried interest, which is what makes hedge fund managers pay so much less in taxes than the secretaries? >> yeah, well, i think you'd find massive support among democrats and virtually no support among republicans. even eliminating the oil subsidy, that's $4 billion a year and that's something the oil companies say they don't need or want. there are plenty of opportunities to come up wit
license. >>> there are signs however, house speaker john boehner said there may be limited changes in the coming months. they recently hired an adviser to john mccain who has long backed immigration reform and they say the hiring as well as comments by house speaker john boehner have an influence on the republican party and indicate he is serious about making changes to the immigration system. >>> they are expected to vote on two of its biggest unions and this comes after an agreement was reached on family leave provision and they mistakenly ended the contract. bart's board of director is leaving oakland this morning. >>> trapped passengers have been stuck in the ice for ten days and they are finally being rescued. >> they are taking a helicopter home. >> that video was posted hours ago, 52 passengers, scientists and tourists are now safely on board an ice breaker. they were ferried on a helicopter from a chinese ship. >>> and a strong winter storm is bearing down on the midwest and more than 1,000 flights have been canceled. new york city may get 10 inches of snow and boston has a

the parties. it dropped to the lowest approval level. you had a falling out with speaker john boehner. a lot of republicans have decided to distance themselves. how do you describe this bruising time? >> i do not think there have been that many republicans have -- who have distanced themselves from heritage. at the end of the day, if the shutdown was caused by the president. as we are seeing the problems with obamacare, the fundamental flaws for america that he had and that he has turned into law, more and more people are looking at conservatism is something -- as something that is admirable. 72% people do not like the republican party. i am one of those. they need to find the soul and who they stand for. when most americans of that washington, they see a game and pretend food fights. they have the tax code written in their favor. you are a small business person or somebody who just wants to go to work and go on to your family, you do not have a voice in washington. >> aren't you, in a way, part of the game? you score members. the scores go together. you're very much part of the process. a l
" article suggested immigration may be at the top of john boehner's to-do list in 2014. boehner hired rebecca talent, a longtime immigration adviser to senator john mccain who has committed to what he calls step by step moves to revise immigration laws and based ones this end of year rant against tea party groups supporters believe the signs are pointing to reform. what do you say to that and where does it fall on your agenda? are you in lockstep with john boehner if immigration is on the agenda for 2014? >> i think you have to start with first thing's first. when congress gets back the first thing it has to do is take the budget deal and actually makes it law, otherwise government can literally shut down on the 15th. i think we'll get that done, but it hasn't been accomplished yet. you have a farm bill that's going to be accomplished and i don't see much on the immigration front until the spring at the earliest. i think those other things have to get done first. >> do you think that that is the real logical dateline agenda in talking about immigration and the possibility of any type
this percentage increased to 45%. now we look at the decline in ratings for the republican party and john boehner over the same time from 2011 through 2013. we can see that significantly more tea party activists who rated the republican party and john boehner below average in 2013 as compared with 2011. his below average ratings more than doubled to 57% in 2013 compared to 27% in 2011. on the side we show a factor analysis of republican congressional leaders in -- and candidates using the freedomworks data. this resulted in two factors. factor an establishment and the other was the tea party factor. those numbers that you see in parentheses are the net favorability ratings where the red dots represent a net negative rating and the green represent ant -- net positive reading. you can see that we find the republican party along with republican congressional leaders such as aynor and cantor -- john .oehner and cantor in addition, most of these people in the upper left-hand corner have negative ratings. hand cornerr right- we found the tea party and the tea party candidates such as ted cruz who were
answer? the pressure was on john boehner before. when we think about the authenticity of that answer and action behind those words, is it more words just to buy people cover to get them through the mid terms? >> no. i think speaker boehner is at a point where he has taken the very conservative, tea party members of his caucus, taken to the edge and looked over just how bad that government shutdown was and they've been scolded. they've been scalded by that if you will. he's free to do -- he's in a much, much more powerful position than he was prior to the government shutdown. i certainly believe that. i think most democrats believe that. that being said, he wants to actually be the speaker for all 435 members and we have now seen him do time and time again where he is not doing the majority the majority relying on democrats to get things out of the house. one thing that's coming up, the spending bill that has to be done by january 15th. that's a key indicator. if he gets that and sends it other to united states senate in a couple weeks without a bunch of republican votes but with demo

that house republicans latched onto. over the advice of republican leader john boehner. speaker john boehner and others thought that it was not going to be a winning strategy. you have a divided government right now, even if it could pass out of the congress which seems unlikely, the law would be defunded or delayed. president obama would probably defunded or delayed, never signed that kind of a bill, -- president obama would never sign that kind of a bill, right? it was a strategy without a complete end that would accomplish the goal. >> you mentioned house and republicans couldn't agree on spending. the shutdown happens, they tried continuous ways to change the law through legislation. but republican leaders also start introducing many appropriations bills. funding veterans programs and the national parks. why did they try to go that route? >> as you can imagine, shutting down the federal government as much as people, love or hate the government, shutting down national parks and routine government services was not popular. this became a tension across the country. workers are getting tensi
party appears to be less pragmatic. we see more ted cruises and rick perry's been john boehner's and mitch mcconnell's. the moderation we used to see is being replaced and as a direct result the middling area become smaller and smaller. it impacts republican and national policy. most importantly, the traditionalists and over terry and have blown -- grown closer together. there's more opportunities for this bridge, especially during the reagan administration. that alters not only the -- political discourse but outcomes, especially for today's modern republican party. with that in mind, there are really four ways that these three groups can cooperate in order to achieve their ultimate goals. the first being the idea of a inferiority split. say, you have control over issue. you are in charge. there is much more give-and-take than that. secondly you could have a simple split. the idea of, we agree to disagree. something we are not seeing within those two camps. you can leave it ambiguous. this is an argument where activists kind of smudge the difference between themselves and reali

, was john boehner standing up as you remember, you were there, and denouncing some of the right-leaning outside groups that have been pressuring members to vote certain ways to bring down bills, to bring down compromise bills that a lot of people even in the party had been supporting. i think that could presage a different era. at the same time, we saw over at the senate, the right-leaning senators, particularly those up for re-election, really pushing back against for example, the budget deal. i think that will be the interesting dynamic to watch. >> i think the budget deal allows them a little bit of space to do some things that there is bipartisan agreement. if you look at sexual assault in the military, gillibrand was able to put together a very bipartisan group. claire mccaskill was able to put together her own on immigration, there's a potential for that. there are a number of issues, drones, things like that, where there are possibilities for this. getting these big budget issues out of the way i think does -- >> this is such an optimistic group. ryan? debbie downer. here

shutdown. >> you know even john boehner has said this was a republican shutdown. >> look, why help what other people say. and john, i understand that in the media, every day the media reported. >> but come on. >> let's get right to our panel. jonathan capehart is a political writer for the "washington post" and msnbc contributor and josh barrow for the business insider. thanks to you both for being here. >> thanks, karen. >> so jonathan, okay, so 2013 was supposed to be the year of reince priebus and american rebranding. so maybe in 2014? >> i don't think so. look, the gop autopsy, accurate -- i mean, as i wrote gop autopsies are done on ted things, and the republican party is doing everything it can to remain dead. that autopsy said the republican party needed to reach out to women, young people. african-americans. latinos. needed to pay attention to immigration. lgbt rights. and on all of those things, the republican party has proactively done things to turn off all of those constituencies and to do the opposite of what they need to do on those issues that i enumerated before. >> you
from john boehner. he referred to your organization or others. he talked about the budget negotiations and moving ahead to the 2014 legislative year. here was the speaker last year. [video clip] >> frankly, i think they are misleading their followers. they're pushing our members and laces were they do not want to be. that they just think have lost all credibility. these statess into to defund obamacare and shut down the government. that was not the strategy that i had in mind. if you recall, the day before the government shutdown, one of these groups said we never thought it would work. are you kidding me? , you don't know me. i say would it mean and i mean what i say. i am as conservative as anyone around this place. all of the things that we have done over the three years that i have been speaker, have not violated any conservative principle. not once. host: andrew ross, is he talking about club for growth? guest: he is exaggerating. it is true that we lost that shutdown battle. it is better to fight and lose the not fight at all. if we fought on principle, i think we have been vindi
kept saying no, no, no, no. >> john boehner had the unfortunate honor of being the nominal leader of house republicans when the united states government was brought to its knees, but behind the scenes there was another force at work, a band of house tea party republicans who effectively executed a hostile takeover of the congress with their defund obama care or else strategy. there are about 80 of them, and we profiled some of them in our series "these are the people who are running the country." tonight, we reintroduce you to one of our favorites. meet congressman and current candidate for u.s. senate, paul brown of georgia. congressman paul brown won a special election in 2007. he won re-election in 2008 and 2010 and again last november. now he wants to be georgia's next senator. his credentials? well, he's a doctor, he was a lobbyist for the safari club international, a group that advocates for hunters, and he brags about being the first member of congress to call the president a socialist. congressman broun, who sits on the house science, space and technology committee, last y

speaker john boehner is reportedly ready to make a deal. i thought he wrote a sensational article about this. he will explain his argument next up on the kudlow report. across the country has brought me to the lovely city of boston. cheers. and seeing as it's such a historic city, i'm sure they'll appreciate that geico's been saving people money for over 75 years. oh... dear, i've dropped my tea into the boston harbor. huhh... i guess this party's over. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. just by talking to a helmet. it grabbed the patient's record before we even picked him up. it found out the doctor we needed was at st. anne's. wiggle your toes.

, but john boehner is not going to get -- i mean, look what happened to marco rubio when he tried to do something on immigration. he got crucified, right? so how are the republicans -- i mean, you could get obama to do any number of deals on immigration. immigration is a great example. i mean, he wants a deal on immigration. >> harwood tells -- >> he wants to deliver a deal on immigration. >> harwood tells a story in this column about bill bradley sitting down with al simpson, senator al simpson of wyoming, former senator bill bradley of new jersey, and he had a list of 22 questions. and he went down and he asked simpson the questions. and they agreed on 16 of 22 whereupon bradley says okay, you have my vote because 16 of 22 is enough. now, i am unaware of any cooperative bipartisan personal relationships like that today. >> you know the other thing about ronald reagan, he'd been a governor for many years, he probably negotiated dozens of agreements. he'd been a union president. how many agreements did he have to negotiate? you now have a president who's never been a manager and has nev
to deny those benefits. he wants a vote right now. and the house speaker john boehner says that he's open to it if the benefits are paid for, i know you have been opposed to it in the past, but if his conditions are met, can you support the extension? >> well, i think what's really call is to have an economy that doesn't have jobs in it, so we have to talk about what policy creates jobs. with regards to unemployment insurance, i'm not opposed to that, i'm opposed to having it without paying for it. i think it's wrong to borrow money from china. i'm not against having unemployment insurance. i do think, though, the longer you have it, it provides dis disencentive to work. there are many studies indicate this. we have to figure out to create jobs and keep people from becoming long-term unemployed. >> but are you saying now, that if this extension is paid for you could support it? >> well, what i have always said it needs to be paid more, but we also have to do something for long-term unemployed people. and that is, we need to create something new that creates job. what i would like to do, w
interest in governing this year and seems john boehner has more interest in being speaker this year and he's not going to allow, at least i think he's not going to allow a faction of his party to decide how he leads. so, if that's the case, i do think we can get some things done, but our focus needs to be front and center on jobs. it needs to be on income inequality. it needs to be on the minimum wage. it needs to be having a fair share for everybody in our country. >> let me ask you then in that context about immigration. do you think john boehner's break with the tea party on the budget last year bodes well for an immigration deal? >> i do think it does, because ultimately we could pass the senate bill right away, if he would just break with the notion that the majority of his caucus has to be on the same page. i'm a little less optimistic about immigration reform, because what i hear is they want a piecemeal approach, and my problem with a piecemeal approach is i don't think you ever get to citizenship, and that's where the biggest hurdle is for them. they can get to legal resident, but
for democrats. who's the biggest political year?this caller: i think it's house boehner. ?ost: john boehner caller: john boehner and mitch mcconnell of kentucky, california, comes up with all of these scandals, phony scandals on the president. true.f it's they are just losing for the american people. american people cannot win for these guys. the first caller you had, he right. 80%, 90% of the people want wage, they want some type of gun control where get guns.ples can't and they all against it. if you got 90% of the peoples these guysing and steady voting against it, you know, they don't work with this him tont, they want lose. that's my opinion. via: one of the opinions individual,till an says the unemployment are the biggest losers. they were tossed overboard when extended left employment -- or unemployment out of the budget deal. rockford,lling from illinois. independent caller. hey, mike. caller: hey. good morning. morning.d caller: the biggest losers are the voters. aen corporations can back candidate, number one. number two, when congress is tax incentives for corporations to move ov
the legislation that has a lot of people concerned. and secondly, where we stand, will be witness speaker john boehner having his way? putting forward that it seems ttat he will push forward for the amnesty version of the immigration reform. better than the bob goodlatte order approach to dealing with the issues. >> yes, the leadership has been working very closely on that. including speaker joh boehner who is very helpful by month ago. in making it absolutely clear that not only do you take up the senate ended his night special pathway to citinship for people who are legally in the country. lou: up next, doctor charles krauthammer and his blockbuster best-selling book. ♪ lou: my next guest, one of the most influential and respected commentators of ourim lou: my next guest is an influential commentator of our time. from doctor to writer to think or tt social critic. and an ardent conservativ chaes krauthammer, we thank you for being here. and we are pleasedo recommend what is a blockbuster bestseller already. it makes the book so compelling. walter mondale, henry jackson, how can you be asso
a problem. the base is hostile to immigration reform. will the liberation of john boehner calling out these conservative groups lead him to do what he knows is right politically? >> there's an opening. >> definitely an opening. >> that is one of the biggest questions. both parties realized there's more to gain in passing immigration reform in whatever form. >> in an election year in i don't have the hope it would happen. >> watch out. lindsey graham and other republicans have been clear on this. that fundamental diversity deficit will get bigger and bigger. will long-term strategy prevail or will something else dominate? immigration reform is the big open question here. >> a new year, new hopes. i believe they have learned a lesson. one thing will be guaranteed, these midterms will have no turnout. no turnout. here's the republicans. there's the democrats in certain jurisdictions as well. >> here's republicans most being primaried from the right. >> that's exactly right. that took a big blow from mr. boehner, thank you to him. >> keep hope alive, chris. i love where you're coming from
